This blog by Stephanie Sandifer of Change Agency hit a nerve with me: Khan Academy, TED-Ed and the new leaders in education reform – REALLY?!
We are in full agreement with Stephanie. Those of us “outside” the system are here to empower teachers by providing them with exceptional free tools and content…not to replace them. The way we do schooling is changing just as the rest of our world evolves, but that does not mean that teachers and education leaders are not-change makers! Teachers do the heavy lifting. Teachers choose the materials and methods that will work for their students. Teachers are the heroes!
I’d like to hear your opinion as a teacher or an educator.
